Project Arts Centre and ADI announce major new production award


Posted: 30 August, 2018


Project Arts Centre and Arts & Disability Ireland announce a major new production award for theatre and contemporary dance artists with disabilities. This award is designed to support the production and presentation of ambitious new work by individual artists with disabilities.

What does the Realise Production Award include?
• Production award of €40,000 for presentation of new work at Project Arts Centre
• Production workshop (open to all interested applicants pre-application)
• Mentoring support from consultant producer for 4 short-listed artists prior to final application
• Post-application production support for the successful applicant

Deadline for expression of interest application:
Thursday, 15th November, 2018 at 4pm
Expression of interest application form and guidelines will be available to download from 15th October.

Project Arts Centre and Arts & Disability Ireland have a long history of supporting artists and are working together to support artists with disabilities to produce high quality arts and disability work for presentation.

For Project Arts Centre, this is an exciting opportunity to extend its supports for artists, and to present ambitious new work that reflects the complexity of contemporary life in Ireland to a diverse audience. This award is supported by the Project 50 Commissioning Fund.

Arts & Disability Ireland have identified the need for a production award through its experience of managing the Arts and Disability Connect funding scheme for artists with disabilities. This production award will fund an artist to produce and present a new work, which is beyond the scope of the current scheme.

What artforms are eligible?
Individual artists with disabilities working in theatre and contemporary dance are eligible to apply.

Timeline and application information
Artists are invited to submit an expression of interest application by Thursday, 15th November at 4pm. Expression of interest application form and guidelines are available to download from 15th October at projectartscentre.ie/realiseaward or adiarts.ie/realise-production-award
